Fransoso started the scoring with an RBI single before Alex Castellanos drove a two-run double to right field two batters later.

“It was nice to put some crooked numbers on the board for us after a lot of one run games,” said Fransoso, who finished 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. “It was nice to string some hits together 1-through-9 there. That was good for the team and we’ll just try to build from that.”

The Skeeters lone run came in the top of the ninth inning on an RBI fielder’s choice by Alvaro Rondon for the 9-1 final.

Trevor Foss (1-1) picked up the win with five scoreless innings and six strikeouts. Brett Marshall (1-1) suffered the loss, allowing two runs-one earned- on four hits in six innings pitched.

The 2018 Somerset Patriots season will continue at home with a 6:35 pm game on Wednesday, May 23rd against the Sugar Land Skeeters. For tickets, visit www.somersetpatriots.com.
